With 3D printing evolving, a team sees if it can be used to create a new kind of food

This year is already gearing up to be an exciting one for 3D printing, a process that might’ve once seemed foreign but is talked about in spheres like food, fashion and art. 3D printing could especially play a big role in not only how we eat our food but how it affects us after we do. According to takepart, researchers at the Wageningen University in the Netherlands have partnered up with FrieslandCampina to create dairy products using 3D printing.

These products would minimize some of the negative characteristic of dairy products—such as cheese, which can cause higher cholesterol levels. By creating these food items, the team hopes to come up with healthier solution that can make a significant difference in a person’s diet.
